The Home Office

Putting diversity and inclusion at the heart of who we are to create a better Home Office

The Home Office is one of the original great departments of state and has amongst the most challenging jobs in government. Its mission is fundamentally important - to protect the UK by keeping citizens safe and our borders secure. Our priorities are to prevent terrorism, cut crime, control immigration, promote growth and to transform the Home Office into one of the most diverse and inclusive employers in the UK.

The Home Office leads on immigration and passports, drugs and crime policy, counter-extremism and counter-terrorism and works to ensure visible, responsive and accountable policing in the UK. These issues are at the heart of the government’s agenda. The challenges the department faces are significant and can change rapidly in the global environment in which we operate. This makes it one of the most exciting and stimulating departments to work in. We offer an enormous range of opportunities and challenges for people at all levels from Border Force Officers at our ports, to defining our immigration policy post-Brexit and co-ordinating our responses to threats of terrorism.

But we recognise that to deliver that critical agenda, the Home Office must be representative of modern Britain in all its diversity. By encouraging diverse and talented people to join the organisation, we can benefit from new ideas and outlooks to develop new and better ways of doing things.

The Home Office is creating an environment where all colleagues can be themselves and work to the best of their abilities. We are working to make leaders at all levels "Inclusive by Instinct" and we have set out how we will do that in our extensive diversity and inclusion strategy.  We give our staff the opportunity to use their skills and talents to build a rewarding career in a place where they can raise ideas and challenge in a respectful way to arrive at the best decisions.

We have already made headway in making the Home Office a great place to work and have been recognised for our achievements:

Winner - Employers Network for Equality and Inclusion, 2016

Winner - Business in the Community Race Equality Awards 2017

Highly Commended - Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index, 2017

Winner - The Times Top 50 Employer’s for Women, 2017

We believe that attracting and welcoming a diverse range of brilliant people to the Home Office will help us better serve the public and deliver our mission, while also truly reflecting the people of those communities at all levels of the organisation.

On the links below you can see how colleagues in the Home Office are helping us to deliver that agenda and news and updates about our successes in becoming more diverse and inclusive.

More about Home Office

Diversity

To make the most of our talent, we need staff to achieve their full potential, working effectively with all our partners in delivering a first-rate service for our service users.

Enabling staff to make the very best of themselves at work will enhance our policy making and our working environment.

We will use our diverse backgrounds to enhance professional knowledge, bring challenge and new perspectives.

This will help us build capability and flexibility to deliver as part of a new, reformed civil service.

Organisations that embrace diverse workforces and support life and family responsibilities deliver better results, more motivated staff, increased recognition from service users, greater innovation and internal challenge leading to more justified decisions. 

Equal Opportunities for All Staff

The Home Office is committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all staff. We will not discriminate on grounds of gender, gender identity, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief, age, those with caring responsibilities, part time workers or any other factor irrelevant to a person’s work.

We encourage a diverse workforce and aim to provide a working environment where all staff at all levels are valued and respected, and where discrimination, bullying, promotion of negative stereotyping and harassment are not tolerated.

Assessment for recruitment, selection, appraisal, training and career progression purposes is based both on the individual’s ability and suitability for the work.  We are committed to providing all staff with opportunities to maximise their skills and achieve their potential, offering flexible working arrangements wherever possible.

As a public authority the Home Office has statutory duties placed on it that require it to promote equality of opportunity and eliminate unlawful discrimination.  We expect all staff to assist the department in meeting these obligations.  All staff should have due regard for the need to promote good relations between individuals from different groups and work towards achieving equality of opportunity for all.

The Home Office has concluded that membership of any group or organisation that promotes hatred in its philosophy, aims, principles or policies based on gender, gender identity, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief is incompatible with the work and values of the Home Office.
